And because everyone goes to country's they all say that it's the best. The BBQ is pretty good I must say? The sides are great but the place is becoming too same ole same ole. Nothing about this place has changed since they have opened. Maybe that's helped is that it's the same every time. A new item or a... More

Had it catered in for a meeting. Was told that it is either #1 or #2 for BBQ in Columbus. The selection of meats, sides, Brunswick stew, were unlimited. The food was very good and since I looked around and most everyone finished their plates I would say it is #1 in Columbus.

Went to the downtown location (Greyhound Station) and could not have been more disappointed. The 'famous' Texas brisket is anything but 'famous'. The brisket tasted liked seasoned shoe leather. The butter beans, black eyed peas, and most of the other vegetable sides were overcooked. The waitstaff were more interested in socializing with each other than in our experience or satisfaction.

great service and servings Country BBQ is amazing. We showed up on a Friday evening with a party of 9. The parking lot was full, smoke pouring out the hood. We knew we made a great choice. We only waited about 15 min.

I have eaten at multiple locations of Country's Barbecue and all have been good. I really enjoy the downtown location which is inside of an old greyhound bus station from the 1940's. Barbecue is good, Brunswick stew is excellent along with their other sides. I like it because it is like a normal restaurant. Unfortunately, I have been to several... More

Great place for family. The food is good with many dishes besides BBQ. Check out the Mercury Drive location Friday and Saturday after 6:30pm for great live Bluegrass.

The restaurant was in a small strip mall, with the smoker for the cooking outside. The décor was like being in an old barn, with different pictures from the past which gave it a country feel. The service was ok, once drinks were served, order was taken, food came, the waitress never came to check how things were or to... More

Fries are fresh cut and delicious. The BBQ is excellent and flavorful especially if you get the ends. A yummy meal with great sweet tea. Busy and fitting log cabin type atmosphere. Smell the smoke! Warning - during peak times there will be a line sometimes out the door. Prepare to wait - it's worth it!
